AUSTIN, TX -- The Texas University Interscholastic League has announced its new classifications for high school athletic programs across the state. The changes affect schools from 1A to 6A programs and have ramifications for teams anticipating playoff play against the newly realigned schools.

District 13-6A was home to schools from The Woodlands, Conroe, Willis, Cleveland, Spring, and New Caney, which made it one of the largest athletic districts in Texas in terms of land area.

Expectations for realignment stemmed from rumors that schools outside of the core Conroe/Woodlands area would be realigned to districts closer to them geographically.

The size of student bodies in schools such as Cleveland High School increased the possibility that no schools would be moved due to their relative isolation from other schools along with their substantial number of students.

After the UIL’s announcement at 9:00 A.M., the athletic programs of 13-6A saw one another in the same district. No changes were made from the 2023-2024 season into the 2024-2025 season.

The following schools were a part of 13-6A before realignment and will be a part of it after reclassification.

Caney Creek



Grand Oaks

New Caney

Oak Ridge


The Woodlands

The Woodlands College Park

The teams all have a fair feel for one another after multiple seasons spent competing against one another, but the shifts from districts outside of 13-6A will have impacts on who will be played come the playoffs.
